Editorial Reviews

Time Out New York
“Dark and bleak, dirty and real. . . . Dan Fante’s style is raw, insightful, and deftly realized.”
Uncut
“This devastating and terrifying book . . . sees Fante writing the kind of emotionally tormented novel that his father would surely have written if he’d been born into Dan’s generation.”
Anthony Bourdain
“Breathtaking writing. . . . Angry, acerbic, self-pitying and often painfully funny. . . Read it at your peril.”

    What can I say?

    This guy rocks the hell out of his stories. Wringing the words out onto the page, you feel his rage, his pain. He has a gift that would have fit in with any of the beats and even more so as a continuation of his father's work. A different generation sure, but he has tapped into the mainline of what it means to be a down on your luck writer struggling with inner demons as well as various drug and alcohol problems. Genius. He riffs like a bebop horn player. Kerouac would have loved this writer.
